Kedleston Road, Derby Campus



I am a Lecturer in Economics and Finance. Prior to joining the University of Derby, I taught at Edge Hill University in Lancashire. I also worked at the University of Chester and Wrexham Glyndwr University as an academic staff.

Currently, I am responsible for teaching, research and supervision at Derby Business School. As a Lecturer, I support students to understand the economic theories and apply the knowledge to analyse the everyday real life situations more efficiently. For doing so, I apply student centred and research focused teaching techniques in the class.

Teaching responsibilities

I lead the third year 'Applied Economics Project' module. My other teaching responsibilities involved Business Economics, Global Business and Strategy, Industrial Economics, and Current Debates in Applied Economic Theory at various levels. Apart from teaching, I supervise undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations.

Research interests

My research focuses on the various aspects of the third sector economy. Furthermore, I am keen to conduct a cross-country study to explore the efficiency of the non-government organisations in the emerging economies.
